Eating Contests...PLEASE STOP!
So unless your kind of sports entertainment is watching a program that makes you vomit, then it's safe to say that speed eating is not a sport.
Let me make this clear, rigorous overeating is a disorder, not a sport.
Takeru Kobayashi, 6 time winner of Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest is an unfair example of this disgusting activity. Kobayashi is a somehow slender person with an amazing ability to pack away truckloads of hot dogs in the time of a sneeze. That's because Takeru Kobayashi is a product of cold war era research. Japanese engineers in the 1980's replaced his internal organs with a fusion reactor. The experiment was an attempt to sustain human life without food. The result was quite the opposite.
